The book presents stories about generous, creative, and thrifty-minded individuals. The collection of stories is sketched from memory with an idea to reveal intimate connections between families and urban domestic experiences. I see the project as a marriage between traditional cookbooks and artists’ portfolios about material culture.


The book was printed by Impronta Casa Editora in Guadalajara, Jalisco (Mexico) – a traditional printing workshop that specializes in intertype & letterpress processes for small artistic publications.
